The brushed aluminum look of the tiles adds a nice ambience.

I'm considering buying a 2007 19' bambi with a Midnight Sun with Tropical Oak wood finishes interior. The original brochure says the walls are fabric covered - they look off-white or white.

The pictures show strips that look like they may be holding the sections of the interior wall coverings together. Is the fabric glued into place?

Anyone have experience removing the covering to return to an aluminum interior?

Do you think this covering explains the really good price of this unit?

I have a 2003 Bambi and took the carpet off it did not look like you could make the wall skin nice and shiny ... there is sprayed on glue and things on it. I put stick on tiles over it and am very happy with the results. See my post with pics on this forum. I actually have enough of the tile left and can sell it to you if you do decide to go this route ��

I've taken the fabric or "mouse fur" off. It's really a nightmare. I had to first pull the fabric off exposing the yellow glue underneath. There are a couple links on this forum somewhere which I followed and altered. Look up "mouse fur". I basically used stripper and plastic razor blades, (literally 100s of these orange plastic razor blades), to get the glue off. What I had left was an interior aluminum that was not meant to be seen by the human eye. I'm not home to show you pictures but the quality of the interior wall was clearly done so poorly it was obvious that they knew the workmanship would be covered. Airstream confirmed this. Not only that but if you are going to attempt this I would advise you to take everything out, cabinets, fridge, stove, couch/bed, etc. I think this mouse fur was the first thing installed. I have a '97 Excella wide body. The walls are awful with this stained mouse fur. I redid the back bedroom and remade cabinets and the bed after stripping the walls. I bought marine vinyl to cover them and the "t" channels you were asking about from Airstream. I may not do that now. I've seen some excellent work done with rubberized paint but I'm not sure of the process. Good luck!
